High-speed web on way in Barton
BARTON is set to receive high-speed fibre broadband.
The initial upgrade will give fibre access to just over 3,500 premises in Barton as part of a scheme that will benefit North and North East Lincolnshire.
Barton will be upgraded by the end of spring 2014, BT says.
The expansion includes a further investment in making fibre broadband more widely available in areas which already have the high-speed technology or are due to receive it.
Councillor Neil Poole (Messingham), cabinet member for policy and resources at North Lincolnshire Council, said: "High-speed communications have never been more vital in order to succeed in an ever- more competitive and connected world."
